There are several ways to copy artifacts from a Linux server to a Windows server. Here are a few commonly used methods:

  1. SFTP/SCP: Use Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) or Secure Copy (SCP) to transfer files securely between Linux and Windows servers. You can use tools like WinSCP or FileZilla on the Windows server to connect to the Linux server via SSH and copy the artifacts.
  2. FTP/SFTP server: Set up an FTP or SFTP server on the Linux server and configure it to allow connections from the Windows server. Then, use an FTP/SFTP client on the Windows server (such as FileZilla) to connect to the Linux server and transfer files.
  3. Shared network folder: Create a shared network folder on the Windows server, accessible from the Linux server. Mount the network folder on the Linux server and copy the artifacts directly to the shared folder.
  4. rsync: Utilize the rsync command to copy files from Linux to Windows. While rsync is primarily designed for Linux-to-Linux synchronization, it can be used to copy files to a Windows server with the help of tools like Cygwin or using the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).
  5. Cloud storage services: If both the Linux and Windows servers have access to cloud storage services like Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive, you can upload the artifacts from the Linux server to the cloud storage and then sync them to the Windows server.


Choose the method that aligns with your requirements and the available tools on both the Linux and Windows servers.

Another approach to copy artifacts from Linux to a Windows server is using the "rsync" command in combination with the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) if you have it installed on the Windows machine. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Make sure you have WSL installed on your Windows server. If not, you can enable it from the "Turn Windows features on or off" settings.
  2. Open the WSL terminal on the Windows server.
  3. Navigate to the directory where you want to copy the artifacts from Linux by running the following command: cd /mnt/
  4. Run the rsync command to copy the artifacts from the Linux server to the Windows server. For example: rsync -avz
  5. Enter your Linux server password when prompted, and rsync will start copying the artifacts to the Windows server.


By using rsync with WSL, you can securely transfer files between the Linux and Windows servers through a convenient command-line interface.
